What is a Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Panel?
A chlamydia and gonorrhea panel, often called a twin panel test, offers bundled testing for the second and third most common STIs in the United States. This STD test identifies the presence of chlamydia (Chlamydia trachomatis) and gonorrhea (Neisseria gonorrhoeae), as they often occur together.
Due to this comorbidity, it’s recommended to get tested for both if either infection becomes a concern. For many testing providers, this can mean multiple visits or swabbing–an uncomfortable experience we wouldn’t wish on our worst enemy. Instead, Priority STD only requires a single, simple urine test.

How Twin Panel Testing Works
Swabbing is a frequently used routine for chlamydia and gonorrhea panels. This testing method utilizes a sterile cotton ball to collect a sample of bacteria[1,2]. Since this sampling is often uncomfortable for patients, urine testing is our only method of detecting chlamydia and gonorrhea.
Once collected, results are made available to you through our online portal as quickly as 24 hours after collection. Our labs use efficient, CLIA-certified methods to ensure accuracy.
Why Order Twin Panel Testing?
Getting tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea is about protecting the health of you and those you care about. According to the CDC, 2019 saw over 2 million cases of chlamydia and gonorrhea combined.3
While both of these STDs are easily cured with a round of antibiotics, complications can arise. For this reason, getting tested as soon as possible is best for your sexual health and that of your partner(s).
When to Get Tested
As recommended by the CDC, sexually active individuals who are pregnant, have multiple partners, or have unprotected sex should get tested.4 These individuals, among others, should pursue yearly testing or as recommended by their doctor.
If you should start experiencing abnormal discharge, burning urination, genital pain or swelling, getting tested is the best option. Otherwise, an untreated chlamydia or gonorrhea infection can lead to complications such as infertility or long-term pelvic pain.5
Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Treatment
While testing positive can be unsettling, both of these infections can be treated! Since chlamydia and gonorrhea can be cured so easily, if caught early, we make this step simple by offering treatment options for those who test positive.
When getting treated, caution should be taken when resuming sexual activities. Reinfection is possible for both chlamydia and gonorrhea. Those who test positive should get tested again after 3 months to rule out reinfection.6 During treatment, the infection is still contagious and can be spread to partners.

Do you take walk-ins?
To get same day testing, simply purchase your lab order either online from our website or over the phone with one of our care counselors. Once your order has been placed, you can get tested immediately at any of our local and discreet collection facilities without an appointment. No other patients at the testing center will know your reason for visiting other than to give a routine urine and blood sample.
How do I get my test results?
Your test results are accessible through a secure login unique to your order, updated 24 hours a day including partial results. Once your final results are available, you’ll be notified by email discreetly. Test results are expedited as a rush order and typically process just 24-72 hours after visiting the collection facility. If you have questions about your results or require a treatment consult, our care counselors are just a phone call away. Nothing will ever be sent to your home or healthcare provider to respect your privacy.
Do I need an appointment after ordering?
No appointments are required at the collection facility after you have ordered your test. Your lab order is valid for 90 days and can be used immediately once your order has been placed. Typically your entire visit will take no more than 15-30 minutes.
Can I switch testing sites?
Even after you have selected a testing site, you can switch locations any time you wish. Your lab order can be used at all Quest Diagnostics collection sites within the same state without having to change your lab order. If you wish to test in a different state, simply call to speak with a care counselor who can update your requisition. There are no fees associated with switching testing sites either.
Is a swab required for testing?
Patients frequently ask if swabs are required for testing. Swab testing is not only uncomfortable, but also can be embarrassing. Our tests do not require a swab or any other type of visual examination. All that is needed is a simple urine and blood sample.
How accurate are my test results?
All of the tests we offer are FDA approved and performed in CLIA certified labs to ensure the highest level of accuracy. Some STDs require that you wait a period of time after sexual contact before getting tested. Each disease has a different latency period, so understanding when to test is important. If you have questions, our care counselors are happy to walk you through the process, start to finish.
Do I need to fast before getting tested?
No fasting is required for any type of test we offer. If you are testing for chlamydia, gonorrhea, or trichomoniasis, please ensure that you have not urinated for at least one hour prior to visiting the testing center.
Do you accept insurance?
To use your health insurance, we are able to provide all of the necessary information to file a self-claim. We utilize Quest Diagnostics which is the largest lab network in the nation, therefore most healthcare providers will offer some form of reimbursement. We will never directly bill your insurance to ensure your results are completely private and kept off of your permanent health record.
